Trekkers

We believe that everybody, whatever their level of ability, is an important and vital part of our Big Family, and is able to fully know the love of God.

We recognise that for some people, accessing church and events can be challenging. Therefore, we seek to provide a welcoming, safe and accessible programme for all. We have three sessions which run to coincide with our 10.30am and 6pm Sunday services.

Sunday Groups

Trekkers is the additional need children’s ministry at St Saviours.  There are three sessions that  run to coincide with our 10.30am and 6pm Sunday services during term time only. The sessions involve fun, activity-based bible themes with craft and drama.  Advance booking is essential to ensure a safe ratio of children to volunteers.
